        Origine, trasporto in Italia, primi progressi in essa dell'algebra... Printed by Bodoni

      Parma: Reale Tipografia Parma, 1797-1799. History of Algebra, Printed by Bodoni, Inscribed by the AuthorCossali, Pietro. Origine, trasporto in Italia, primi progressi in essa dell'algebra. . . . 2 vols., 4to. [24, incl. blank leaf], 396, [4]; [10], 492, [4]pp. 2 engraved plates. Parma: [Giambattista Bodoni for] Reale Tipografia Parmense, 1797-99. 282 x 203 mm. Quarter calf, speckled boards c. 1799, expertly rebacked, a bit rubbed. Fine, crisp copy, presented by the author to his friend Luigi Bramieri, with the recipient's inscription opposite the title in Vol. I: " Dono graziosissimo dell' egregio autore a me devotissimo suo amico Luigi Bramieri." First Edition. Cossali, the best-known historian of mathematics in 18th-century Italy, taught physics and astronomy at the University of Parma, and was later named by Napoleon to the chair of mathematics at Padua. "He wrote various memoirs on mathematical questions, chiefly algebraic, but is best known for his history of algebra, a work of considerable scholarship and even yet of service to the student of this phase of the subject" (Smith, History of Mathematics, 1, p. 541). "C'est un ouvrage important, plein de recherches auxquelles prÈside la critique la plus ÈclairÈee. Apres avoir examine toutes les opinions contraires, il conclut que l'algebre a ete empruntee aux Indiens par les Arabes, qui l'ont ensuite introduite en Europe" (NBG). Cossali's work was one of the very few scientific books printed by Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813), the most successful and influential Italian printer of his era, associated with the Royal Press at Parma from 1768 until his death, and proprietor of his own press from 1791. Bodoni "was the most successful early proponent of what is (somewhat misleadingly) referred to as the 'modern' typeface, distinguished by a strong contrast between the thin and thick strokes, and vertical, rather than oblique, shading. His books were produced for the wealthy and the aristocracy, and were more advanced in elegance and refinement than anything else being printed in Europe" (desktoppub [internet reference]). Typefaces based on Bodoni's are still widely used. Brooks, Edizioni Bodoniane, 696.

A Treatise on the Art of Painting, and the Composition of Colours is now a regularly-cited source for information about eighteenth-century painters' practice. The book includes clear descriptions of painting in enamel (the most solid and durable, but also the most difficult), mosaic, fresco, gouache, miniature, watercolour, pastel, and crayon. There are ten pages devoted to specifics of colour, including recipes for colourmaking.

        Voyage dans l'Interieur des États-Unis, a Bath, Winchester, dans la Vallée de Shenandoha, etc. etc. etc. pendant l'Été de 1791

      Paris: Cocheris, 1797. First edition. (2), xvi, (2), 336 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary quarter leather over paste paper boards, French tips, flat spine decorated in gilt, red leather spine label, marbled endpapers. Joints rubbed, spine label chipped, some spotting and soiling to the text block, otherwise a near fine copy. Ferdinand-Marie Bayard de La Vingtrie (1763-c.1818) had pursued a military career in his native France, rising to the rank of lieutenant before leaving the army in 1788. Bayard was in his twenties when he made this journey to Virginia (the area is now in West Virginia). In Clark's words, "His purposes in traveling to Bath were to save his wife and child the perils of a summer in Baltimore, and to observe Americans in village and country rather than in towns in constant intercourse with Europe... Bayard's account affords a sympathetic, sentimental, leisurely picture of society at a forgotten watering place seldom visited by travelers. His social and intellectual acceptability and the length of his stay set his book apart from the customary tourist-guide gazetteer. His stated intention of delineating manners and customs is fulfilled." After returning to France, he published "Voyage dans l'intérieur des États-Unis.".

        Schirmbrief mit eigenh. U.

      Hainfeld, 15. V. 1797. - Gedr. Formular, von Sekretärshand ausgefüllt. 1 S. Qu.-Folio. Schermbrief für "Michl Fritz und Theresia dessen Ehewirthin", denen einige zum Gut Hainfeld dienstbare Liegenschaften gegen jährlichen Zins zur Bewirtschaftung übergeben werden. - Der zum Kreis der österreichischen Kantianer zählende Purgstall hatte bereits in jungen Jahren Kant in Königsberg besucht; nach seiner Rückkehr nach Österreich trat er "zunächst als Volontär bei der niederösterreichischen Regierung in den Staatsdienst und sein Haus ward in Wien bald ein Vereinigungspunkt aller Elemente, welche höhere Bildung und vaterländisches Gefühl verbanden" (ADB XXVI, 716). 1809 wurde er Generalintendant des Heeres von Innerösterreich und von den Franzosen gefangengenommen. Obwohl bald freigelassen, hatte die Kerkerhaft in Mantua seine Gesundheit zerstört, und er starb noch nicht vierzigjährig in Florenz. Sein einziger Sohn Wenzel Raphael überlebte ihn nur um wenige Jahre. Da mit diesem die Linie der Grafen von Purgstall erloschen war, hinterließ die Witwe Gottfrieds dem befreundeten Orientalisten Joseph von Hammer das Gut Hainfeld und den Namen des Hauses Purgstall, welches er an 1836 führte.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Kiel, 29. VIII. 1797.. 3 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to.. Wohl an den Rechtswissenschaftler Gottlieb Hufeland (1760-1817) in Jena: "Wohlgebohrner Herr, Hochzuverehrender Herr Justizrath! Ew. Wohlgeb. werden es mir, wie ich hoffe, verzeihen, wenn ich so frey bin, Ihnen die beykommenden Schriften als ein geringes Zeichen meiner vorzüglichen und ungeheuchelten Ehrerbietung, Hochachtung und Ergebenheit zu übersenden. Schon lange wünschte ich, mir dieses Vergnügen gewähren zu dürfen, aber der Gedanke, Ihnen in meinen Arbeiten zu mißfallen, und mir selbst in der Zeitschrift, deren Tadel ich auf gleiche Weise ehre und fürchte, einen schnellen litterairischen Tod zu bereiten, hielt mich bis diesen Augenblick unwiderstehlich davon zurück. Auch jetzt noch würde ich mich sorgfältig von Ihnen zu verbergen suchen, hätte ich nicht vor einigen Tagen auch die Güte des Herrn Etats-Rath Trendelenburg die mich über alles erfreuende Nachricht erhalten, daß Sie meiner Inaugural-Schrift Ihren Beyfall nicht ganz versagen, und daß Sie sich in einem Briefe an den Prof. Reinhold auf eine gütige Weise über mich geäußert haben. Ich wage es also, Ihnen hiebey meine ersten kleinen litterarischen Arbeiten zu übersenden, freylich nicht ohne eine gewisse Angst und Furchtsamkeit, aber doch in der Hoffnung, daß Sie nicht ein unbedingtes Todesurtheil über mich sprechen, mir nicht ganz den Gedanken rauben werden, daß ich vielleicht dereinst bey fortgesetztem Fleiß und in einer minder beschränkten Lage hin und wieder etwas nützliches für die Rechtswissenschaft leisten kann. Bis jetzt habe ich nur äußerst wenig Stunden zu schriftstellerischen Versuchen erübrigen können, und gewissermaßen im Fluge gearbeitet. Dieß muß ich Ew. Wohlgeb. zu meiner Entschuldigung sagen, um für manche Mängel meiner Arbeiten Verzeihung von Ihrer Güte zu erhalten. - Dürfte ich bei dieser Gelegenheit Ew. Wohlgeb. eine Bitte vortragen, deren Erfüllung mir sehr am Herzen liegt? Sie haben meine Dissertation gelesen, der Inhalt derselben ist Ihnen bekannt, - wollten Sie mir wohl die Güte erzeigen, und, sobald es Ihre sonstigen Geschäfte erlauben, eine kurze Anzeige derselben in die A.L.Z. mir überlassen? Ich wünsche dieß, theils um durch die Erinnerungen Ew. Wohlgeb. belehrt zu werden, und theils um durch die Autorität der ersten Zeitung Deutschlands den falschen Urtheilen anderer Recensenten vorzubauen. Meine Dissertation befindet sich, wie ich sicher weiß, in den Händen mehrerer [Wort unleserlich getilgt] Juristen, welche, wie ich höre, nicht klug daraus werden können, und im Begriff sind, meine Arbeit als ein mißlungenes, unbedeutendes Product dem Publico anzukündigen. Ich gebe freylich zu, daß ich viel gefehlt haben kann, aber ich hoffe doch, daß das Ganze nicht ohne Sinn und Endzweck ist. Ich wünsche daher auch nichts weiter, als daß die Herren, wenn sie mich recensiren, meine Schrift nicht wie eine gewöhnliche, aus bekannten Materien compilirte Dissertation flüchtig, sondern mit Bedacht lesen, und dazu, glaube ich, könnte sie nichts vermögen, als die Zeitschrift, welche bey Freunden und Feinden gleiche Autorität hat. - Ich bitte daher Ew. Wohlgeb. mehrmals recht angelegentlich, sich meiner anzunehmen, aber auch zugleich nichts zu verschweigen, was zum Tadel meiner Arbeit, mithin zu meiner Belehrung gereichen könnte [...]". Thiebauts Kieler Dissertation "De genuina iuris personarum et rerum indole, veroque huius divisionis pretio" (1796) wurde - zusammen mit zwei weiteren seiner Werke - in der Allgemeinen Literatur-Zeitung Nr. 155f. (16. Mai 1798) lobend besprochen; als einzigen Fehler der Arbeit tadelte der Rezensent "die häufigen, langen Excurse", die "zwar von den Talenten des Verfassers zeugen und sehr schätzbare Untersuchungen und Winke enthalten, aber doch die Gedankenfolge unterbrechen und der Einheit des Ganzen schaden". - 1798 wurde Thibaut außerordentlicher, 1801 ordentlicher Professor für römisches Recht in Kiel. 1802-05 in Jena, erlebte er die letzten Glanzjahre der Stadt in der Gesellschaft von Voß, Goethe und Schiller (in dessen Gartenwohnung er logierte). Ab 1806 lehrte er in Heidelberg, wo er zum wohl berühmtesten Romanisten seiner Epoche wurde und auch mehrmals das Rektorenamt innehatte. Hauptgegenstand seiner wissenschaftlichen Tätigkeit war die Pandektenwissenschaft, die er von der römischen Gesetzeslage zu einem wissenschaftlichen juristischen System fortzuentwickeln trachtete. Im sog. Kodifikationsstreit vertrat er entgegen F. C. von Savigny die Auffassung, das Zivilrecht in Deutschland könne und solle zu einem Gesetzbuch kodifiziert werden. Auch von hoher musikalischer Begabung, leitete Thibaut in Heidelberg einen Singverein; in seiner Abhandlung "Über Reinheit der Tonkunst" (1824) forderte eine Rückkehr zu klassischen Komponierweisen wie der Palestrinas und wurde so zu einem Wegbereiter des Cäcilianismus.

        An Authentic Account of an Embassy from the King of Great Britain to the Emperor of China ... Taken chiefly from the papers of His Excellency the Earl of Macartney

      London: W.Bulmer & Co. for G.Nicol, 1797. 3 volumes (text: 2 vols, quarto [10 3/4 x 8 3/4 inches], atlas vol.: large folio [22 1/2 x 17 inches.)] Text: 2 engraved portrait frontispieces, of Emperor Tchien Lung in vol.I and the Earl Macartney in vol.II, 1 plate, 26 vignette illustrations after William Alexander and others. Atlas: 44 engraved views, plans, plates, charts or maps (including a large folding world map, 3 natural history subjects and 25 views). Text: contemporary tree calf, flat spine divided into six compartments, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. (Expert repairs at top and tail of spine). Atlas: expertly bound to style in half calf over period brown paper covered boards, spine gilt uniform to the text Provenance: Sir Thomas Courtenay Warner, 1st Baronet (armorial bookplate in text) First edition of the official published account of the first British embassy to China, headed by the Earl Macartney: complete with the atlas of maps and plates. George Macartney, 1st Earl Macartney (1737-1806) was dispatched to Beijing in 1792 traveling via Madeira, Tenerife, Rio de Janeiro, the Cape of Good Hope and Indonesia. He was accompanied by Staunton, and a retinue of suitably impressive size, including Staunton's 11-year-old son who was nominally the ambassador's page. On the embassy's arrival in China it emerged that the 11-year-old was the only European member of the embassy able to speak Mandarin, and thus the only one able to converse with the Emperor. The embassy, the first such to China, had two objectives: the first to register with the Emperor British displeasure at the treatment that the British merchants were receiving from the Chinese, the second to gain permission for a British minister to be resident in China. The first objective was achieved, the second was not. Macartney was twice granted an audience with the Emperor and in December 1793 he was sumptuously entertained by the Chinese viceroy in Canton, and returned to England via Macao and St. Helena, arriving in September 1794.Brunet V, 525; cf.

        TO HIS EXCELLENCY THOMAS MIFFLIN ESQUIRE, GOVERNOR OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA. THE PETITION OF JOHN HYTON OF STRASBURG TOWNSHIP IN THE COUNTY OF LANCASTER. HUMBLY SHEWETH. YOUR PETITIONER'S WIFE HATH BEEN FOUND GUILTY OF HORSE STEALING AND SENTENCED TO ONE MONTHS IMPRISONMENT AND TO PAY A FINE OF SIXTY DOLLARS FOR THE USE OF THE STATE. THAT YOUR PETITIONER IS VERY POOR AND IN DISTRESSING CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNABLE TO PAY THE SAID FINE, HAVING ALSO THREE SMALL CHILDREN WHO DEPEND UPON YOUR PETITIONERS DAILY LABOUR FOR THEIR SCANTY SUBSISTENCE. YOUR PETITIONER THEREFORE HUMBLY PRAYS THAT YOUR EXCELLENCY TAKING HIS DEPLORABLE SITUATION INTO CONSIDERATION MAY BE PLEASED TO REMIT THE SAID FINE.

      [Lancaster, PA: 1797 - [1], [2 blanks], [1- docket, with Governor Mifflin's signature approving the petition]. Manuscript petition, written in ink on a single page, with the names and signatures of ten townspeople endorsing the petition. One leaf. Old folds with a few short splits but Very Good. Elizabeth Hyton was convicted of horse stealing "on the last Monday of February Anno Domini 1797." Governor Mifflin pardoned her on March 27, 1797, when her one-month jail sentence expired. Fortunately for Elizabeth and her impoverished family, Pennsylvania did not consider horse theft a capital crime, unlike some States. In 1786 Pennsylvania became the first State to adopt discretionary terms of hard labor and imprisonment for felony offenses, and to delegate to judges rather than juries the authority to determine the sentence. "The frequency with which felons were pardoned may be surprising to those familiar with modern clemency practices. Pardon and benefit of clergy were alternative and ameliorative features of what was otherwise a horribly draconian penal system." King, 'The Origins of Felony Jury Sentencing in the U.S.' 78 Chicago-Kent Law Review No. 3, pages 937, 949 [2003] [noting the dramatic rise in pardons for horse-stealing in 18th century Virginia, when it was rendered a capital crime].

        The Botanist's Repository. " The Botanist's Repository, for New, and Rare Plants

      Illustrated Books: London: Printed by T. Bensley, and published by the author. 1797-1815. 10 vols, 4to. With 9 (of 10) titles, and 654 of 664 plates, colour-printed and finished by hand. Contemporary full crimson straight-grained morocco, apart from the last volume which has been bound in contemporary half morocco. Plates 163-8 in volume 3 misbound between plates 156 & 7. A superb and unusually complete set, clean, bright and in a fine contemporary binding. Andrews himself drew, engraved and hand coloured all the plates. The absence of plates from the final volume is explained by a handwritten note, loosely inserted into the final volume, expressing the frustration of the original owner, who had been collecting the parts of Andrews' work as they were issued for the best part of twenty years and finally ran out of patience: "This volume wants a number - with the index - of which Mr Andrews had long promised to give - to compleat the 10th vol. - which finishes the work -but after 2 or 3 years bound them up with some others of his works - Roses & Geraniums. January 1815 - Begun 1797". Andrews' monumental work is an early example of colour printing and the first printed representation of many exotic species. It was issued (notionally at least) in 137 monthly parts. Most of the descriptions in vols. 1-5 are by John Kennedy; those in vol. 6 are by Adrian Hardy. Haworth (ESTC).: Dunthorne 8, Nissen 2382.

        Flying lemur, an original watercolour sketch for a published print

      - Original pencil, bodycolour and watecolour by Audebert, on laid paper. Fine condition. Sheet size: 22 x 14 1/2 inches. A very fine original watercolour by Audebert: an original of an image that was published in his first great natural history book 'Histoire Naturelle des Singes' (Paris: 1797-1800). Although the present drawing is unsigned, it is clearly by Audebert. This fine watercolour gives some insight into the working methods of one of the most highly respected pioneers of a golden era in natural history publications in France. Audebert, a painter by training, was born at Rochefort. His interest in natural history was stimulated by a commission to help with the preparation of the plates for G. A. Olivier's work on Coleoptera. This drawing is an original for Audebert's Histoire Naturelle des Singes , the only publication of his own work to be completed during his life-time, which was published in ten parts between 1797 and 1800. He died in 1800, in Paris, leaving notes and drawings for a number of other works which were published after his death.

        A piece of live oak from the frigate <i>U.S.S. Constitution, </i>carved into an elegant oval frame with an engraved portrait of George Washington, who was President when this, America's most famous ship, was first outfitted

      n.p., n.d. A small wooden picture frame, 2.5" x 3.25", with a hand-carved motif and acorns of a southern live oak tree running along the .5" wide molding, surrounding an engraved bust portrait of George Washington (after Gilbert Stuart). The paper backing on the verso reads: "Live Oak taken from the Frigate 'Constitution'", and signed with the initials, "A. M." Minor wear, some toning to paper backing on verso. The primary building material for the U.S.S. Constitution was southern live oak, which was cut and milled near St. Simons, Georgia. The southern live oak was highly prized by ship builders for its extraordinary tensile strength and its ability to resist salt air and rot. The same qualities made harvesting the trees enormously labor intensive and time consuming. Several hundred live oak trees were used in the construction of the frigate, and crews battled not only the incredibly tough wood, but heat, mosquitos and the diseases they carried with them. Due to these factors, it took nearly three years to complete the ship, which was launched on September 20, 1797.

Old repair on bottom fold separation, some scattered tiny holes; otherwise very good plus. This large attractive map of Africa includes in the title description that Franz Ludwig Gussefeld (1744-1807 prepared this map with astronomical observations found on the maps of Sayer, Rennel and Arrowsmith. According to Norwich (see map 112) the German notation in the bottom left further states that accurate geographical knowledge of the interior will only be available after further exploration. No interior settlements are named. Despite the attempt at greater accuracy, many of the larger rivers of central and North Africa are omitted or are shown incorrectly. Still, the map is attractive and colorful. Norwich # 112.

Turgot in His Letter to Dr. Price, Dated the Twenty-Second Day of March, 1778. Philadelphia: Printed by Budd and Bartram, for William Corbett, 1797. Three volumes. 6, xxxiii, [2], 4-392; [iv], 451; [ii] 528, [36] pp. Volume I has copperplate portrait frontispiece and Six-page subscriber list. Octavo (8" x 5"). Recent period-style calf, blind fillets and gilt rules to boards, gilt-edged raised bands and lettering pieces to spines. Moderate toning to texts, occasional light foxing, Volume II has light to moderate dampstaining to the upper portion of the first half of the text block, mostly to margins, title page of Volume III browned and edgeworn, following few leaves have light edgewear. Early owner initials to top-edges of text blocks, later owner signature to head of Volume III title page, interior otherwise clean. * Third, final and best edition, the last one published under Adams's supervision. He wrote this fundamental contribution to American political theory when he was the American ambassador at the Court of St. James. First published in London, the Defence was a profound influence on the delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and the framers of several post-Revolutionary state constitutions. It also did much to familiarize Europeans with the novel political events taking place in America. Adams intended the Defence to be a one-volume work. He added two more volumes in 1787 and 1788 to offer more examples and address issues raised by critics. The first volume, reprinted from the London edition, was reprinted in New York and Philadelphia in 1787 and Boston in 1788. An abridged two-volume French translation was published in Paris in 1792. The third edition, a corrected reprint of the second and final London edition, 1794, was the only complete three-volume text published in the United States. Not in Sabin. Howes, USIana 60.

        Voyage dans l'Interieur des États-Unis, a Bath, Winchester, dans la Vallée de Shenandoha, etc. etc. etc. pendant l'Été de 1791

      Paris: Cocheris, 1797 - Ferdinand-Marie Bayard de La Vingtrie (1763-c.1818) had pursued a military career in his native France, rising to the rank of lieutenant before leaving the army in 1788. Bayard was in his twenties when he made this journey to Virginia (the area is now in West Virginia). In Clark's words, "His purposes in traveling to Bath were to save his wife and child the perils of a summer in Baltimore, and to observe Americans in village and country rather than in towns in constant intercourse with Europe- Bayard's account affords a sympathetic, sentimental, leisurely picture of society at a forgotten watering place seldom visited by travelers. His social and intellectual acceptability and the length of his stay set his book apart from the customary tourist-guide gazetteer. His stated intention of delineating manners and customs is fulfilled." After returning to France, he published "Voyage dans l'intérieur des États-Unis." First edition. 8vo. (2), xvi, (2), 336 pp. Contemporary quarter leather over paste paper boards, French tips, flat spine decorated in gilt, red leather spine label, marbled endpapers.

      - Dublin, printed for P. Wogan &c 1797. Two volumes 12mo contemporary sheep (some insect chewing of leather around the spines). Some browning and signs of use but a pleasing enough original copy. First Irish edition, hard on the heels of the London edition. Having never recovered from The Mysteries of Udolpho and the awe and wonder it produced in me - I still wonder how it didn't kill the Romantic movement stone dead and I had an awful urge to slap Emily every time she trembled in ecstacy faced with a slice of nature - I'm unable to face The Italian. The conflicting opinions of it being her both her best and her worst book makes it bit more intriguing.

        Hiden Senba zuru origata [trans.: Secret Methods of Making a Thousand Conjoined Cranes]

      Very numerous woodcuts in the text. 31 folding leaves. Small 8vo, orig. blue wrappers (somewhat worn & rubbed), orig. block printed title label on upper cover (rubbed & frayed). Kyoto: 1797. First edition of the first book on recreational -- as compared to ceremonial -- origami techniques. Gido (1762-1834), the chief priest of Choenji temple at Kuwana City, was an expert of the Renzuru technique. This, the most classic and advanced of all Japanese origami methods, is a technique in which up to one hundred connected cranes are created from one folded sheet of paper. Strategic cuts are made to the original large square sheet, forming a mosaic of semi-detached smaller squares which are then folded into connected crane shapes. Rito Akisato (fl. 1780-1814), has provided each model with a short comic poem (Kyoka). The illustrator, Shunsensai Takehara from Osaka, the son of the famous artist Shuchosai Takehara, depicts the 49 models of cranes, each of increasing complexity. In addition, Takehara also provides several full-page or double-page illustrations of women making origami along with other historical scenes. Fine copy preserved in a box. There is no copy of this book located in WorldCat; it is truly rare, copies no doubt having been used to death. .
